Bayern München 2-0 AEK Athens
Robert Lewandowski marked his 100th UEFA club competition appearance with two goals, the first a penalty, to send Bayern two points clear of Ajax and end AEK's hopes of finishing in the top two.
Benfica 1-1 Ajax
Ajax began the day four points above Benfica and although they did not register the win that would have booked their round of 16 place, they retained that cushion over their hosts. Jonas did give Benfica a first-half lead but just past the hour Dušan Tadić levelled as Ajax recovered well.
Manchester City 6-0 Shakhtar Dontesk
David Silva scored for a third straight UEFA Champions League game as City cruised to victory. Gabriel Jesus provided a hat-trick, including two penalties, with Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez also on target. Hoffenheim's late comeback prevented City qualifying tonight but they are now three points ahead of Lyon at the top, with Shakhtar down in fourth.
Lyon 2-2 Hoffenheim
Lyon seemed to be moving six points clear of Shakhtar after Nabil Fekir and Tanguy Ndombele made it 2-0 before the half-hour, and Hoffenheim lost Kasim Adams Nuhu to a 51st-minute red card. But Andrej Kramarić pulled one back, before Pavel Kadeřábek struck in stoppage time to keep Hoffenheim alive.
CSKA Moskva 1-2 Roma
Kostas Manolas got Roma off to a great start with his fourth-minute header. Arnór Sigurdsson equalised early in the second half but within nine minutes CSKA's Hördur Magnússon had been sent off and Lorenzo Pellegrini registered the winner.
Viktoria Plzeň 0-5 Real Madrid
Plzeň edged the early exchanges yet then found themselves 4-0 down at half-time, including two goals by Karim Benzema, the first taking him to 200 for Madrid. Casemiro and Gareth Bale also netted, with Toni Kroos adding a fifth, set up by European debutant Vinícius Júnior within minutes of his second-half introduction. Both Madrid and Roma are now five points above CSKA, with Plzeň's top-two hopes over.
Juventus 1-2 Manchester United
A stunning Cristiano Ronaldo volley against his old club appeared to be sending Juventus into the last 16, with only a point needed. However with four minutes left Juan Mata equalised via a free-kick and, as time ran out, Ashley Young's set piece deflected in off Leonadro Bonuucci to lift United within two points of Juve and keep them the same distance clear of Valencia.
Valencia 3-1 Young Boys
Valencia secured their first win in the group, with Santi Mina's first-half double coming either side of Roger Assalé's impressive equaliser. Carlos Soler got the third after the restart and YB, still on one point, had Sékou Sanogo sent off and cannot finish in the top two.
